Cebu’s strategic location in the center of the Philippines has long made it a commerce, culture, and connection hub. Because of this Philippine Airlines (PAL) has decided to further spread its wings by expanding its Cebu hub to offer more flights and destinations around the country.
PAL now offers a new route from Cebu to Laoag and resumes flights from Cebu to parts of Visayas and Mindanao.
PAL’s Cebu hub is mounting flights to Laoag as the gateway to Ilocos Norte, which is home to unique natural rock formations, sand dunes, and centuries-old stone churches that preserve the province’s rich history. Through this newly opened direct route, travelers will now also have easier and faster access to cultural heritage sites and local flavors in the entire Ilocos region—all starting from the vibrant heart of Cebu.
“Through our “Larga Ta, Cebu!” campaign, Philippine Airlines is providing more ways to reach every part of the Philippines and the world. The true beauty of our diversity and culture is best seen through the eyes of explorers, and we want more people to experience the unparalleled beauty of our land,” shared PAL President Captain Stanley Ng.
“PAL is eager to serve more leisure and business travelers and thus we are expanding our network of flights to and from the Queen City of the South, as Cebu is an ideal and convenient travel gateway,” he added.
PAL is expanding beyond the Laoag route by reintroducing flights to General Santos, Legazpi (Daraga), and Ozamiz from Cebu. The reopening of these three prime routes offers travelers a gateway to unforgettable adventures and the chance to uncover the Philippines’ hidden gems.
“Philippine Airlines welcomes all to explore new destinations around our country, all accessible from our hub airport in Cebu. Let’s discover the uncharted wonders and embrace the diverse beauty of our beautiful Philippines,” Captain Ng said.
You can book your next journey from Cebu to Laoag, General Santos, Legazpi (Daraga), and Ozamiz for the travel period beginning December 15, 2023.
